Waking up to sugar of 70, exciting as well as scary

Yesterday I woke up to a morning fasting sugar of 70. I have not seen a number that low ever in my diabetic life.

I was excited that I must be doing something right to get my numbers in this great range. I had a momentary day dream of me being almost non diabetic :-)

Then out of the blue I worried. What if this is dangerous. Should my sugar be going this low. What if it kept going lower while I was sleeping and I would not have caught it.

Funny how being diabetic ends up giving us a hard time even when good things are happening. Anyway I told myself to be happy and had a great day.

What qualifies you to be called STUPID

I seem to hear this word a lot these days.

I wonder what would constitute being stupid?

Is it stupid to know that you are diabetic but still eat a candy bar in one sitting?
Is it stupid to eat like a normal person and hang all hope of sugars on medications?
Is it stupid to experiement with extremely low amounts of carbs in your diet?
Is it stupid to hang all hope for a cure on the stem cells?
Is it stupid to not keep on dwelling on the past?
Is it stupid to crave a nice donut once you know it can kill you?
Is it stupid to not have gotten your self checked regularly?

I just feel stupid today!!!
